Is hard for me to keep up with what you are doing for the hour here ...

But I can tell you this. If you are going to have a share with multiple
users accessing a directory the best thing you can do is to have a
domain-users like.


For example:

        path = /home/ADD
        browseable = no
        public = no
        writable = yes
        nt acl support = no
        valid users = @add @addrw

(You should change the browseable to see the share from the clients)

ls -ld /home/ADD
drwxrwx---+ 10 root addrw 4096 Mar  6 12:31 /home/ADD/
bowman:/etc/samba# getfacl /home/ADD/
getfacl: Removing leading '/' from absolute path names
# file: home/ADD
# owner: root
# group: addrw

Now if you like to manage permissions from the clients, you should start
thinking about using acls in the filesystem.

/dev/mapper/storage-home on /home type ext3 (rw,acl)

And you should change the "nt acl support" to yes.

I hope this helps.
